Susan, a single mother of an autistic child named “J” came to MCHT after struggling for many years. I was desperate.

I had no choice but to move in with my ex-husband. I had lost all my self-esteem. I was living in an awkward situation.

Housing for People, Not for Profit

Temporary Housing Program

Providing Apartments units for distressed familes

Mountainlands' Temporary Housing program not only provides a roof over the heads of those in need, it also refers these families to humanitarian services to provide a lasting impact on the lives of the participants. This program is the first and only of its kind in Summit County.

MCHT’s commitment to the participants is to create a bridge to fiancial independence.

Participants create a specific plan to achieve the three highly defined goals of the program:

  1. Obtain and remain in permanent housing;
  2. Improve self-determination;
  3. Increase skills and/or income.

Susan's Story

"Susan" came to Mountainlands Community Housing needing a hand up, and became another Mountainlands Transitions success story. Her story is in the photos above.

Mountainlands Community Housing Trust (MCHT) is based on the belief that a safe affordable home is often a family’s first step toward economic self-sufficiency.

Celebrating 20 years in 2013, MCHT addresses the dual problems of housing affordability and availability on three fronts: acquisition and new construction of affordable housing, direct assistance in securing housing, education and advocacy to promote housing policy.
